You can now renew your vehicle licence at Pick n Pay

South African retailer Pick n Pay announced that it will be trialling another service that it wants to potentially add to its offerings,  vehicle licence renewal. 

This new trial will give motorists an option to skip queues at traffic departments and post offices to rather renew their vehicle licences in-store.

The group said renewals can be done for all areas in South Africa and will also allow customers to pay any outstanding fines that could be blocking a disc renewal in the same payment.

Customers should receive their vehicle licence disc via courier within 10 business days, delivered to an address of their choice.

How it works

  • Register with your cellphone number at the till in-store or register on Pick n Pay’s website here.
  • Set up your profile and your payment on the portal and opt to pay in a Pick n Pay store.
  • Pay in-store at the till by providing your cellphone number as your payment reference and the group will courier your vehicle licence disc in 10 business days.

“When you are ready to renew your vehicle licence disc, make sure you have uploaded the required documentation and captured the address you would like the disc to be delivered to on the portal," Pick n Pay said in a statement. 

“You can then set up a payment for your vehicle licence renewal and select to make payment in a Pick n Pay store. Your vehicle licence disc renewal payment will include the following, which is automatically added to your payment amount.”

The fees are as follows:

  • A licence disc renewal admin fee of R345 (including VAT);
  • A delivery fee of R99 (including VAT).

Pick n Pay added that if a customer has any outstanding fines that may be blocking the renewal of their license, there is an option to pay the fines by including them in their payment.

“If you do not settle these fines, your disc cannot be renewed. The payment amount provided on the portal will be linked to your mobile number, which you can provide as a reference when making payment in-store.”
